Re: Photo storage question

Advance apologies if I use the wrong nomenclature... I'm not an expert on this stuff.

Instead of mooching off my friends for freebie server space, I'm looking to find a commercial server where I can easily upload all my digital images to. My ISP provides some freebie web space as part of my monthly package, but the space isn't terribly huge and the amount of hits my stored stuff can take is limited.

Is there a service out there that I should be looking at? I'm probably not going to add a website (I'll stick with my simple GeoCities page). Yet I want a relatively inexpensive place to upload my pics with a service that allows quick downloading for end users (the persons viewing the photos) and liberal limits on the rate of data transmission.

Any direction would be appreciated.

Re: Photo storage question

I copied Figment and got a smugmug page....very easy to use...something like $23/yr, good bandwidth for my type of usage. I recommend them:

http://ipowerweb.com/ That's my host. Pretty reliable. 800 megs with 40 gigs of transfer per month for 8 bucks a month.

No matter how beautiful a woman may be, some man somewhere is sick of her sh!t.
